Favorite Philadelphia, Main Line or Villanova Activity: I really enjoy going for dinner at the Reading Terminal Market.
Why did you choose the Villanova MSF: The small class size of a very competitive program peeked my interest as I wanted to be in a well known program where I could build relationships with my peers and professors. Villanova also has impressive job placements and even though I was not planning on going into industry, I wanted to be at an institution that is a support system for their students.
Career interests/plans: Professor in Finance (will be pursuing my Ph.D. after graduation).
Favorite class experience in the MSF: My favorite class experience so far has been the challenge assignment in the Portfolio class. This assignment allows you to challenge your peers and the stocks that they manage in a friendly and constructive manner.
